The property

Resting within private 4-acre grounds by the winding river of Eamont on the outskirts of Penrith is this large, detached house, Willow Mill.

Boasting a games room and playroom to keep the kids of all ages entertained, along with ample off-road parking, green spaces and stunning interiors, Willow Mill is the perfect dwelling for a family celebration or group of 10 friends.

After parking in one of the ample off-road spaces, soak in your peaceful surroundings, before venturing inside to be welcomed by a rustic sitting room that showcases exposed beams and oak furniture; kick off your walking boots and unwind on the abundant leather setting resting in front of a double-sided gas effect wood burner and flatscreen TV.

For more relaxation spots, either move through the property to the sunny conservatory with access to the enclosed courtyard, where you can sit and enjoy a chat with your loved ones as you sip a steaming cup of tea, or climb the staircase to find a mezzanine snug, with a bookshelf featuring a great selection of books for you to delve into, as you sink back into the recliners; the space also offers a luxurious foot massager!

The house also provides you with two fantastic entertainment areas, one being a games room housing a bar where the adults can enjoy a tipple as they play on the pool table, darts board and football table, or with the ample board games at-hand; the kids can relax in the playroom, a space that is a gamer's dream, where a great range of games consoles, games and two flatscreen TVs with Sky await, as well as top-of-the-line gaming chairs!

After savouring an evening packed with fun, make your way to the kitchen/diner, another rustically charming spot, where a brilliant range of appliances can be found, including an AGA range, as well as ample food preparation space; rustling up dinner will be a breeze!

When dinner is served, enjoy it as a quick meal at the peninsula dining table, or as a grand feast at the large dining table below; crack open a bottle of wine to raise a toast to this magnificent retreat.

As day turns to night, you can find an elegant twin room on the ground-floor, a space enjoying red finishes and floral decor, as well as easy access to a ground-floor wet room that is as practical as it is stunning, with its facilities to cater to those with limited mobility, including a support rail and shower seat.

Continue upstairs to find four more beautifully laid-out bedrooms, one of these being a king-size featuring black furnishing to give it a sleek feel, as well as access to an en-suite shower room; further along you can find another twin room with stunning decor, an exquisitely decorated double and another king-size benefiting from a TV; all of the bedrooms host ample storage for your things and views out to the grounds.

The first-floor bedrooms also enjoy access to an impressive bathroom, where you can enjoy a blissful soak in the clawfoot, roll-top bath or savour a refreshing rinse in the walk-in shower; the property also hosts a cloakroom, for extra convenience.

The great facilities don't stop there, as the property enjoys a wealth of outdoor spaces, with a rear garden boasting lawned areas and a child's play area, a front garden featuring decking with furniture and a barbecue, and a side patio with access to your own private tennis court, table tennis and a basketball arcade game.

The property is just a stone's throw away River Eamont, along with being less than half a mile away from a convenience store, where you can pick up your essentials, as well as enjoying ample pubs and eateries at its doorstep.

Penrith's centre is moments away and hosts a 14th-century fortress, Penrith Castle, for you to explore, along with an esteemed Golf Club and ample independent shops.

Make the most of your position by the Lake District and venture into the National Park, where the outdoor delights of Ullswater, Aira Force Waterfall and Place Fell await; the Park also hosts superb attractions for those history buffs of the group, including Dalemain Mansion and Lowther Castle.

A little further afield lies the town of Keswick, where you can tour the fascinating Derwent Pencil Museum and Keswick Museum, partake in hijinks at Puzzling Place, wander around Crow Park or take part in an array of watersports in Derwentwater.

There is plenty left to see within this beautiful region, with the bustling towns of Carlisle and Kendal within easy reach, along with outings by the coast within the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For an unforgettable stay in this stunning part of Cumbria, choose Willow Mill.

About the location


Keswick 17 miles; Carlisle 20 miles.

The bustling market town of Penrith, once the capital of Cumbria, enjoys a central position between the Lake District and North Pennines and is ideally placed for taking in all that the region has to offer. Renowned for its wealth of specialist shops, the sandstone buildings of Penrith hide intriguing yards, lanes and alleyways, with a myriad of attractive cottages, gardens and little shops. With a wide choice of excellent pubs, hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Penrith also offers a museum, and Millennium Trails round the historic city streets. Within easy reach of the town is Rheged – an innovative visitor centre with shops, restaurants, exhibitions and a giant cinema screen showing educational and informative films. Brougham Castle (The Windsor of the North), Long Meg and her daughters (the 3rd largest stone circle in England) and the historic city of Carlisle are all a short drive away, as is the stunning scenery of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
